First of all after writing the word Disclaimer in the title I immediately got the song "Disclaimer" by Chevelle stuck in my head, and am now listening to it as I type this. That though is besides the point. This post is a disclaimer post for the post that will follow. So in case any of you have been living under a rock the new Harry Potter film is coming out at midnight. Now I won't be seeing it until tomorrow night, but for those of you who know me might be probably getting scared for the aftermath after I see this movie. For those of you who don't know me I am a beyond huge HP fan. Though I make it clear, I am a fan of the BOOKS. Probably way to much of a fan. So because of this I kind of sort of absolutely don't like the movies. This stems from a number of things. I understand the point that they can't keep everything in the movies, I get that. What I don't get is how they can change the plot, leave out entire characters (IMPORTANT ONES!!) and skip over details that are kind of essential and wouldn't be a budget concern (*cough* Percy's glasses *cough*) Now today unfortunately my roommate got a pre-Harry Potter movie rant from me in which I'm pretty sure she'd wished she never asked me the question "Why don't you like the movies?" Now I won't get into now because I could go on for pages and pages about the overall things that are wrong with the movies (*cough* left out Bill Weasley until randomly popping up in the seventh one *cough*). But I am preparing you for the inevitable long rant about the new movie and how many things are wrong with it. Feel very sorry for anyone that has to ride home with me from the theatre.
